Real estate agencies are preparing to return to work on Monday 4 May. They will implement various measures, such as establishing shifts in the offices, where plastic partitions have been installed to separate clients and workers, as well as requesting the use of gloves and masks. As for visits to properties, they will only be carried out if they are essential and always using protective equipment.
The forecast is that more than 25% of real estate agencies will close. Although with the appropriate stimulus policies from the Government and the European Central Bank (ECB), the recovery from the crisis will be accelerated and the revival of the economy will start at the beginning of 2021, according to Eduardo Molet, Real Estate consultant for Spanish and foreign financial entities and the founder of Red Expertos Inmobiliarios.
